    Thought this was a Smoothie box!

    Saw this article on the BBC News site and did a double take: BBC News - US probes Syria's use of internet blocking equipment

    Clearly not seen the new colour schemes for the boxes

    Although that wavy pattern is on the current ones, as @tom_newton knows I'm sure they have ripped the current range of fronts off our College Minibus as the waves on it are identical to it..... but he did say a shiny new one was due for BETT.......

    I'm sure some your victims (aka students failing to get through) would like you to a dictator, discerning or otherwise!

    You enjoy mentally torturing the little darlings far too much for it to be healthy!

    My old place had a big red button in the corner of the room that if pressed killed all power to the switches. I always did want to hit that button...

    Look, you didn't buy the Dictator Upgrade Pack, get over it. I told you, $4mil or some weapons grade plutonium and I'll upgrade you myself!

    I'll get some plutonium for you as soon as the Libyans calm down and start talking to me again. They said they left their van parked in a shopping mall somewhere but they can't remember which one, as soon as they've found it again we can talk!
